  • Perfect little rental and Paia is wonderful!

    "Adorable condo in great complex. 1 minute drive to town but coffee shop small grocery store next door. Everything you need is provided and Martha is great. Mama's Fish House is next door. snorkeling beach is right outside complex. Great to get away from the tourist hotels in Lahaina. Having laundry right there with kids is helpful. I adore Paia. We noticed no noise from the Hana Hwy at all the entire time. Make sure you get the back gate code to go to the beach. It just changed. We would come back for sure. My kids loved it too and felt like they lived in Paia, saying it was the best part of the trip and beat the Hyatt and Sheraton on Kaanapali."

  • Great cottage for a relaxing family holiday on Maui

    "This was a great house for our family for two weeks. Great decor, comfy beds, and all the appliances and things you need in a holiday house. THe backyard had delicious grass good enough to sleep on. 3 min walk to the beach which had a great little protected rock pool, perfect for toddlers and babis. 5 min drive to Hookipa beach which is protected from the summer tradewinds. 5 min drive to Paia which has all you need to restock the house. Owner (Mike) was super responsive to all requests. would definitiely reccommend this crib to friends and relatives."

  • Perfect vacation house in an excellent location

    "Just got back from a ten day stay. It was our first time in Maui and we were so pleased with the house and location. Paia is an eclectic charming town that is the polar opposite of the touristy side(s) of Maui. The house is stunning and completely stocked with everything you could possibly want. The pictures posted above by the owner don't even begin to show how beautiful the house really is. The beds are all really comfortable with nice linens (I'm very picky about linens). My husband and I stayed in the upstairs bedroom and we literally fell asleep each night to the sound of crashing waves and a wonderful ocean breeze. We were all so sad to leave this house. Stop looking...rent this house."

Paia Travel Tips

Experience Small Town Hawaii with Paia Vacation Rentals

Paia is a tiny town of about 3,000 residents on the north side of the island of Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands. The fact that Paia is so quiet and tiny is what makes this small town a fabulous travel destination for vacationers who truly want the rest and quiet that can only be found in a tropical paradise. Paia was once a cane plantation, but now it's just a few streets of tourist shops nested among villas, all next to a beautiful white sandy beach. If you're looking to stay there, upcountry Maui cottages and plantation-style Paia villas are available through Vacation Rentals by Owner.

Lodging in the Windsurfing Capital of the World

Paia is known as the windsurfing capital of the world. The shores of northern Maui provide plenty of wind power for windsurfers, and annual competitions are held there. For a tiny town, it's even pulled in some big names. United States Senator John Kerry likes to vacation there and practice his windsurfing hobby. And singer Willy Nelson likes to eat at the local restaurant, 'The Fish Market,' when he's on the island. Paia is only about 20 miles northest of Kahului Airport, which connects to Oahu.

Staying Upcountry Maui with Vacation Rentals by Owner

A vacation rental is an arrangement in which an owner of a private property rents her property to a vacationer. For example, a vacationer in Maui could get to stay in an upcountry Maui villa, and cut costs by having extra members of their party, and cooking meals in the villa's full kitchen, instead of eating takeout. The small, cozy villas of Paia also give visitors to the town an intimate experience; you can stay in someone's home, like a local, instead of in a large hotel. Some upcountry Maui cottages are even right on the beach.
